Symptoms often develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse, or from an injury. Arm injuries result from playing sports, engaging in hobbies, from work-related tasks, or from work or projects around the home.
Forearms, wrists, hands, and fingers are injured most often. An injury to the end of a long bone near a joint may harm the growth plate and needs to be checked by a doctor.
Acute injuries come on suddenly and may be caused by a direct blow, a penetrating injury, from a fall or from twisting, jerking, jamming, or bending a limb abnormally. Pain may be sudden and severe. Bruising and swelling may develop soon after the injury.
Acute injuries usually require prompt medical attention and evaluation. Some examples of acute arm injuries are:
– A bruise or contusion, which occurs when small blood vessels under the skin tear or rupture, often from a twist, bump, or fall. Blood leaks into tissues under the skin and causes a black-and-blue color that often turns purple, red, yellow, and green as the bruise heals.
– Ligament sprains
– Injuries to tendons – the tough, rope-like fibers that connect muscle to bone.
– Pulled muscles.
– Muscle ruptures, such as a biceps or triceps rupture.
– Broken bones or fractures. A break may occur when a bone is twisted, struck directly, or used to brace against a fall.
Treatment for an arm injury may include first aid measures, such as using a brace, splint, or cast. Treatment may also include “setting” a broken bone or returning a dislocated joint to its normal position. After initial treatment an arm injury may require physical therapy, medicines, and in some cases surgery.
The kind of treatment required depends on the location, type and severity of the injury, when the injury occurred, and your age, health condition and activity level.
If you receive an arm injury you should seek medical treatment right away.
You should also consult an PA arm injury lawyer at Freeburn & Hamilton to ensure that your rights are protected, regardless of whether your arm injury occurred at work, at home, while engaged in sports activities or while in an auto accident.
